Re: Friday Facts #250 - Dead end conclusion

Proposal zero is acceptable.

However https://www.reddit.com/r/factorio/comme ... blueprint/ is just so much better!

Re: Friday Facts #249 - Dead end exploration

I don't particularly like any of the options, mostly because they still treat blueprints as items to some extent. My proposal would be: 1. Get rid of blueprints as items completely. 2. All blueprints go to blueprint inventory which is very similar to current blueprint library: left side - blueprints...

[0.16.X] Biters randomly destroying power poles

First let me start with this: I know that biters destroy power poles if they are inside forests and biters get stuck and need to create a path for themselves. I've started a new game since 0.16 update and I've noticed that from time to time my large power poles get destroyed. It happens very rarely ...

Re: [0.15.5] Cannot delete empty blueprint

I'd much rather see a keyboard shortcut to delete any blueprints. Or even an option to automatically delete blueprints. I hate that they clutter my inventory, I'd much rather use the B button to open blueprints library and use blueprints from there.

Re: More granular logistic chests

I don't think it wouldn't work public in multiplayer. While it's true that players would just use highest priority for their chests, they can essentially do the same now by simply using requester chests or even logistic slots. They currently have highest priority of all logistic items. And while it'...

Re: More granular logistic chests

I agree that less is more, this is exactly why I'm suggesting this. It replaces active provider chest, passive provider chest, storage chest and requester chest with new generic logistic chest and one additional option that we currently don't have (chest priorities). It reduces the amount of element...

More granular logistic chests

Hello, Seeing the announcement in friday facts about new logistic chest got me thinking: isn't it making some chests obsolete? While I do understand why in current system we would need that chest, I'm suggesting a completely different system for chests. Instead of having 4 (5) different logistic che...

[0.12.0] Shield regenerating too quickly

Seems like shield is regenerating a lot faster in 0.12.0 to the point where you no longer need to kite biters/spitters. A link to video showing that:

Re: Poor balance of electric poles/substation costs

Fair enough, I've fixed my mistake in original post. However one thing you don't account for is that you will likely have 10s of thousands of wood once you research construction robots so can easily automate small pole production too.

Re: Poor balance of electric poles/substation costs

I don't think your metaphor is 100% correct. Yes price doesn't increase linearly with quality as evident by real world examples and things like batteries/shields in factorio world. However size increase is not quality increase. It adds pretty much no convenience. The more correct metaphor I think wo...

Re: Poor balance of electric poles/substation costs

But they really aren't better. 99% cases where I would use 2 medium poles, I could just use 3 small poles. In fact I'm planning to do my next playthrough not using medium poles at all. I wouldn't use transformators too, but I just can't figure out a nice looking layout for solar panels/accumulators ...

Re: Poor balance of electric poles/substation costs

Well use two small poles instead of one medium (you still use 5x less resources) or substation. It's extremely rare that you can power something with medium/substations but can't with small poles.

Re: Poor balance of electric poles/substation costs

I knew that Shield MK2 and Battery MK2 would come up. Difference is that you have very limited space for batteries and shields and to have more shields and batteries you're forced to upgrade to better armor or better shields/batteries. In this case it makes sense to have exponential prices. Substati...

Substation incosistency with connecting

Small poles and medium poles can connect with each other with 2 empty spaces (where electricity is not provided) between them. Substations can only connect when there's no empty spaces between them. Given that substation is already cost ineffective and it's only use is for nice looking solar panel/a...

Poor balance of electric poles/substation costs

Compare prices of substation vs poles: Small pole - covers 25 spaces, 24 effective spaces - costs 0.5 wood, 0.5 copper Medium pole - covers 49 spaces, 48 effective spaces (2 times more than small pole) - costs 10 iron, 2 copper (12 times more than small pole) Substation - covers 196 spaces, 192 effe...
